Reading through The Princeton Review: Cracking the AP Statistics Exam, I found it an immense disappointment.

The review materials, as compressed as they are, are very dry. The main points are illustrated and all that. It's very wonderful and breathtaking. At the end of each chapter, very few questions are asked that can be answered within few minutes. Then, that's about it for the book. I literally read through it in few hours and finished the exams the next day.

Speaking of the exams, I thought Reading through The Princeton Review: Cracking the AP Statistics Exam, I found it an immense disappointment.

The review materials, as compressed as they are, are very dry. The main points are illustrated and all that. It's very wonderful and breathtaking. At the end of each chapter, very few questions are asked that can be answered within few minutes. Then, that's about it for the book. I literally read through it in few hours and finished the exams the next day.

Speaking of the exams, I thought they were unbelievably difficult. I've taken undergraduate statistics courses in a community college and in universities and also one graduate level statistics course. I have also conducted a lot of work with many clients who take online college statistics courses. That makes me very familiar in how the classes are conducted and what kind of questions the students are expected to encounter on a typical statistics exam.

Usually, the questions will be 85% application based and 15% theoretical. But no...on these two practice exams, the tables have been turned around. Hence, what I took felt a lot more like a graduate level examination. I asked myself if the AP people are for real. This amount of difficulty at a high school level? Wow...okay.

Anyway, solving the exam questions and then thinking back to the review material provided by the book, the all-important question is, "Did the author do a good job of preparing the test taker for such nature of the questions?" The answer is an emphatic no with a capital N. Hence, the rating of `3' from me.

However, it gets a `3' on the positive side for the creation of these two practice exams, so there will be no surprises in terms of difficulty on the actual AP exam. In fact, if the readers will google a bit online for the practice exams, they can download them and do them without buying The Princeton Review: Cracking the AP Statistics Exam. More importantly, the contents of The Princeton Review: Cracking the AP Statistics Exam have not changed all that much whatever the edition was, is, and will be.

All in all, skip The Princeton Review: Cracking the AP Statistics Exam, download the exams from the Internet or copy them from the book at a local library, and choose better AP Statistics books to spend time with.

By the way, if you are all new to statistics and want to do very well on the AP exam, I recommend two books, The Humongous Book of Statistics Problems and Schaum's Outline of Beginning Statistics, Second Edition (Schaum's Outline Series), and this particular calculator, Texas Instruments Nspire CX CAS Graphing Calculator (N3CAS/GC/2L1). ...more
